WICI Talk: Dr. Johan Koskinen -Analysing covert networks from unstructured sources

Understanding covert and criminal behaviour from a social network perspective is gathering increasing currency. While the standard social network paradigm assumes that network data has been collected though eliciting ties from respondents in a predefined set of individuals, covert networks pose obviously challenges in several respects. Firstly, the individuals in the network might not be known a prior. Secondly, what constitutes a relevant set of individuals and ties might be ambiguous.

Abstract:  Evolution is marked by well-defined events involving profound innovations

Complexity science and related methods draw from multiple theories and disciplines. As a result, the application of complexity science and methods can potentially help build bridges across disciplines. However, the use of different language and concepts across disciplines can also act as a barrier to achieving transdisciplinary collaborations to address complex challenges.

Managing air pollution, toxic substances, and climate change is a complex, linked sustainability challenge. To better inform efforts to address these issues, we need to understand how policies to address emissions translate into societal benefits. In this talk, Dr. Selin will present work from her research group, using a systems approach to better understand air pollutants such as particulate matter, ozone, and mercury.
